Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
The 2018 Westphall Ridge Zinfandel expresses a beautiful marriage between fresh blueberry and freshly harvested pomegranate followed by delicate notes of violet blossom, dried black tea leaf and sweet caramel. This Zinfandel shows remarkable balance with plenty of juicy ripe fruit, enhanced by layers of coffee grounds, vanilla pod and sweet earth tones. Its refined tannins linger and resolve into a long and supple finish.
Vineyard Notes
The Westphall Ridge Vineyard is located at nearly 1,400 feet, the highest elevation of all our single vineyard sites. Its western sun exposure, red volcanic soil and steep slope provide the grapes grown here with phenolic maturity without overripe flavors. Intense floral notes and iron minerality are also part of the signature style of Westphall.
Production Notes
Vintage 2018 produced Rockpile Zinfandels with polished and detailed fruit aromas, every bit of mineral essence and supple tannins.
Winemaker Notes
While 12 months of patient aging will reveal additional secondary and tertiary attributes, its elegance can be appreciated now, and throughout the next 5-7 years.
